Youth Sleepover Program

2022 – 2023 Youth Sleepover Program at Heritage Park

Heritage Park invites you to step back in time and spend the night in the historic Burns Barn, home of the Repsol Heritage Education Centre. In the evening, let our educational interpreters guide your group through several hands-on and engaging activities, like making ice cream the old-fashioned way! When it’s time for bed, your group will “hit the hay” in one of our 22 bunks. In the morning, enjoy a continental breakfast, an interactive scavenger hunt in our Historical Village and free time to explore our renowned Gasoline Alley Museum. Your group will love spending the night in this unique setting!


Friday or Saturday evenings, between Oct. 7, 2022 – April 29, 2023. Some dates are unavailable due to holidays and special events.

Sleepover programs start at 6:30 p.m. with drop-off at Burns’ Barn, and end the next morning at 10 a.m. with pick-up at Gasoline Alley Museum.
